When we go on vacation together, I always give up the front seat and let her have it so she will be more comfortable.
When she was younger, I would give her motion sickness drugs but that just made her groggy and no fun to be around. All she did was sleep and then felt crummy when we reached our destination. She was so tired she didn't want to do anything.
Now, things have changed! See the bands on my Daughters wrist? They are a Sea-Band wristband and they work by using accupressure. We were a little leary thinking she would probably get sick on the the way, but.... they worked GREAT!! She was not sick once on our 10 hour drive going to North Carolina. On our trip back to Pennsylvania, I let her have the back seat. She even mentioned how great they were working. She could read, play with her iPhone etc and not get sick.
Be Prepared to Stop Motion Sickness in Its Tracks This Summer
It’s that time of the year again! You finished your summer travel check list and you’re ready to kick back and enjoy anything a vacation will throw at you. However, if Sea-Bands aren’t on your list then you’re not fully prepared for the likelihood that someone in your family will suffer from motion sickness, which could spoil your “car-cation”.
It’s a fact that 53 million Americans suffer from motion sickness (car sickness, air sickness, or sea sickness) and children ages 5 to 12 years old, women, and the elderly are the most susceptible. If you’re a parent, packing drug free, easy-to-wear, Sea-Band wristbands (available in adult and kids sizes) should be as critical as packing their favorite DVDs and snacks.
Parent or not, don’t let nausea from the journey or side effects from anti-nausea medication ruin your time at the destination. Keep Sea-Bands in your glove compartment or travel bag and you’ll be ready to combat motion sickness within 5 minutes. Approved by the FDA, Sea-Band acupressure wristbands are the leading natural, drug-free remedy for motion sickness (car sickness, air sickness, or sea sickness). They work using the ancient Chinese art of acupressure, by applying continuous pressure to the inner wrists (P6 Neiguan pressure point) through a small plastic ball on the inside of each wristband. This stimulation causes the nervous system to release chemicals that help to trigger the body’s natural healing abilities, relieving nausea in minutes.
In addition to the wristbands, Sea-Band Anti-Nausea Ginger Gum is a great option if you’d prefer to subtly relieve your nausea without having to wear your nausea relief bands. Pure ginger root has been used as a medicinal herb for thousands of years and Sea-Band has captured its natural soothing properties in a fast-acting, great-tasting chewing gum. Each piece of gum contains 25mg of ginger oil—equivalent to 8g of fresh ginger root!
